Certified Rock Technician

Well, I now have some competition. No. 2 son came over and not only helped with the yard work today, he also allowed me to certify him as a rock cleaning tech…He is so smooth with a shovel and learned to shift the rocks over the screens so quickly, even to the point of becoming better than his teacher, getting good clean rocks to return to the yard…wow…..But I must say his forte is dumping the dirt, it would almost bring tears to my eyes, he was so quick and speedy with the wheelbarrow….I think he may have missed his calling….Only bad thing about it all is now Momma may expect me to clean that many rocks every day….dang, that’s scary..

Pete,

Have you taught your new certified rock technician how to put a great big “J” on them for Jemez? I will never forget my first day at Kirtland AFB when I looked to the west (or northwest) and saw that great big J shining in the morning sun and wondering what in the heck that was (and what it meant). I remember trying my best to get Albuquerque out of it until I finally got up sufficient courage to ask. Is that old big “J” still there.

Errol, your eyesight is much better than mine as I have not seen the J you have referenced. But, it is probably still there.
